Going by the leaks and rumours, the Nokia 9 PureView is going to be the world’s first smartphone with five rear cameras. The resolutions of each sensor are unknown at the moment, but a report claims that the phone will have 64MP photography mode that will combine data from all the five sensors. Although the phone is said to be a flagship offering, it’ll most likely have Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset instead of the latest Snapdragon 855 ticking at its core.
On the software side of things, the Nokia 9 PureView will reportedly boot stock Android 9 Pie out of the box and will be part of the Android One program. The handset is said to come with 6GB of RAM and a 5.99-inch 2K display with HDR10 compliance. That’s all we know so far!
As for the other smartphones, not much is known at the moment. Of course, it is rumoured that the Nokia 1 Plus will be an Android Go phone, while Nokia 3.2 will be a successor to the Nokia 3.2. However, Nokia 4.2 remains an unknown quantity as the brand has not release a ‘4’ series phone so far and is straightaway going to the 4.2 moniker.
